“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Went for dinner with work colleagues. The food was so good I still talk about it! Fresh asparagus and morels as a starter and finished off with fresh strawberries with cream for dessert. Just divine!

“Excellent food and service, pricy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is one of our standard restaurants for taking out-of-town visitors who appreciate good food. It is a beautiful Provence-style restaurant with a rustic-but-elegant dining room and, in warm months, a lovely terrace. The menu does not vary too much but the special dishes are seasonal. They usually have one 'formule' -- that is, starter, main and dessert for a set price. That is the best value, as starters are 15-20 francs and mains are 30-45 francs each. Service is excellent, and since the food is delicious, you don't mind the price so much -- you could typically pay just as much or more for mediocre food in Geneva.

We decided to have our civil wedding lunch there...just to tell you, how much we like this place. Good food, good service and a friendly atmosphere.
